Hedge Fund Boxers Bloodied Amid Bikini Models in Hong Kong
“It was just so quick,” said Danielle “Steely” Midalia after defeating Andrea “Glynn- sanity” Glynn in the only women’s bout at last night’s sixth annual Hedge Fund Fight Nite in Hong Kong.
“You have no time to think, you just have to rely on your training and what your corner men tell you,” the creative manager at The Cat Street Gallery said, red-faced and covered with sweat just minutes after the bout that had bloodied her and her rival’s noses. “In some ways it was easier than training — as they say, train hard, fight easy.”
The pair, 12 other pugilists, and 600 guests were greeted by bikini-clad models and black-tie waiters bearing trays of beer and wine at the Indian Recreation Club in Happy Valley. Festivities opened when four women in hooded boxing robes stepped into the ring, stripped off to reveal red bikini tops and hot pants, and began a choreographed dance routine under multicolored strobe lights.
